Salon Bruit "started in 2002 in Berlin as an open platform for international artists of various backgrounds who experiment with sound, art, music and noise in unconventional ways. Our activities include concerts, performances, independent radio projects and exhibitions in Berlin and other European cities.
A unique quality of the association is its open, interdisciplinary and independent approach. Our interests lie in the international exchange of ideas and the consequent synergies that this encourages. The emphasis is mostly put on the idea of sharing and networking, which is enhanced by our policy of inviting a mixture of local and visiting artists to the same events. These events take place mostly in the smallest cinema in Berlin, the "Lichtblick Kino".
A renowned independent cinema in the old eastern part of the city. Most of this is documented and some of it played locally on air when the occasion arises." READ MORE
